* Important points

The demo account is a tool designed to enable you to practise using the IG platform in a risk-free environment. While much of the functionality of the live platform features in the demo account, there are key differences to be aware of, including (but not limited to): 

  • Trades made through the demo account will not be subject to slippage, interest and dividend adjustments, or out of hours price movements
  • Trades will not be rejected, which may happen on a live account
  • You will not be charged for chart packages

This is by no means an exhaustive list, and therefore before opening a live account we recommend you read the information available on our website as well as the Customer Agreement to ensure that you are aware of the features of a live account.
